What is Reiki?
The Usui Reiki System of Holistic Healing For People and Animals
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a natural healing art that involves the laying on of hands to channel energy to a recipient. It is NOT a religion and in fact, does not offend any religion. The Japanese word, Reiki, means “universal spirit energy”.
Reiki flows through a person or animal the way electricity flows through wires. This energy, is often described by both the Reiki practitioner and the Reiki client as a tingly or warmth sensation that produces a soothing balance. Reiki helps an individual relieve stress, physical pain and discomforts, and can enable them to regain their strength. It often helps one to recover faster from injuries and illnesses.
A Reiki session is approximately 60-90 minutes in length. Clients are treated fully clothed, sitting up in a chair or lying down on a massage table, whichever is more comfortable. During the session, the Reiki practitioner will gently rest their hands on (or slightly above) various parts of the body in patterns which include the head, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, back and feet.
Throughout its lengthy history, Reiki has been used to help treat virtually every known illness and/or injury. As well, many individuals have used Reiki to help overcome unwanted habits, achieve personal goals, and alleviate stress. Children and animals are especially responsive to this non-invasive and loving energy. This self-help technique does not require any system of belief or thought to be activated and can be easily incorporated as a self-help method to balance our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. It is a great stress management tool!
Like all tools of consciousness, the use of Reiki energy continues to evolve with many lineages of Reiki being taught and practiced today. Nancy Caponi has been a Master of traditional Usui and Tibetan teachings of Reiki since 1996. Nancy may also use crystals, Shamanism, andchakra balancingto assist in balancing the entire mind, body, and soul.
